My nine-year-old is a huge fan of Carluccio's. Me, not so much. But I have to say this visit has made me think again.

Carluccio's is Carluccio's - you know what to expect - good food in a nice atmosphere. The Angel branch is the best one I've been to (and I've been to a lot of them!).

I have tried this Carluccio's on several occasions over the last couple of years, as I like other branches, for example, the branch at St Pancras station. Upper Street, however, never fail to disappoint. Whether there is a long queue to be served or a deserted restaurant, the staff are far too busy chatting away to each other to bother... More

Wonderful to go tonight ( Sunday) and see families enjoying themselves. We went as a family and had a good dinner and a happy experience. Would always go back.

Good friendly Italian service and style. Worth a visit if you can afford it One minor niggle, at closing time they left the front door open and the nice warm restaurant turned into a fridge, we got the message and left shortly afterwards.

Although the menu is not as racy as Formula 1, everything about this restaurant works flawlessly. With all four of us ordering different meals we had a good chance to sample this establishment’s offerings and by the end all of our plates were empty. The helpings appear modest, but a lot of thought had gone into composing each of our... More

Had a Sunday morning brunch here with poached eggs with mushrooms and pancetta on bruschetta. Just perfect! Two coffees ( the smooth blend) everything tasted great! Only thing....the flower boxes on the first floor are watered Sunday early and the residual drops continue down on the outside tables for HOURS! Fantastic selection and quality of olives available to buy!

So good to have a Carluccio's in Islington and very handy for Almeida theatre. Excellent service, knowledgeable and efficient staff; food everso good with authentic Italian flavours and home made pasta etc etc. Always want to buy things in the shop afterwards! Good loos (important!). Only mini drawback - slightly cramped - feel very close to those at next table... More
